Firestone dba bottle from woori super for most likely too much money. Brewed in sept. 2014. Pouring a dark amber with a thick foamy beige head. †Itís got a nice biscuity malt forward nose. Nice crisp clean lightly bitter maltiness. Tasty everyday type beer.

Appearance: Deep orange/copper hue with great clarity and a sparkling body. The head is light tan and very creamy looking.
Aroma: The aroma is mild, lightly floral with mild vanilla and caramel aromas hints of dark fruits and faint cocoa.
Taste: A bit malty leaning with a mild hop presence. Flavors of caramel and mild syrupy cherry are noted along light vanilla, toast and biscuit flavors. I get a light foral hop presence.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent mildly bitter aroma. Corn and cereal flavor with a funky, slightly metallic finish. I like ESBs, but this is average at best.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
British pale with some light tan malts. Surprising nice mouthfeel made this like a martzen. Added hops finished this perfectly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap pour into 20 oz glass at Meddlesome Moth in Dallas. Amber color with white lacing that sticks around for the consumption party. Aroma is a mild malty with some cereal elements. Taste also rocks the malt with bitterness coming through but not all that aggressively. Cereal and bready. Feels almost earthy like it could have been served warm...though that would have sucked. Drinkable but pretty forgettable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at yard house. Clear copper. Aroma of cereal, metallic malt. Taste is sweet. Palate is abysmal. This isn't at all firestone, so I'm pretty sure this is old beer, which wouldn't surprise me from a place like this (100+ taps). My rating is based on these notes. I will revisit & revise.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light aroma of toffee. The taste is bitter, caramel and malty. Okay bitterness that fills the mouth a weak moment. Good beer anyway. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
